  • Excellent....except

    By RickMMontes
    This is an excellent app. I took German many years ago and have forgotten much. Duolingo has helped me to pick it up again. Very easy to use. However, One problem keeps persisting. When I type an answer that is correct it tells me that I am wrong, I loose health over and over and need to keep practicing to get back. This is not a huge problem but it wastes valuable time. I was strongly considering the full version but am afraid of running into more errors like this.

    Works great except that the parts where I have to speak I get no response.
  • Good but some suggestions

    This is a great app but has a few kinks and it would be nice if there was a feature in the app to submit issues. I started one of the beginning lessons with the zoo and bots this morning and have completed the lesson twice and it’s still forcing me to stay on that lesson (even though I completed it perfectly). I’m confused because I can’t move on but the app is saying I got all the answers correct. An ad pops up as soon as I’m done so I’m not sure if the ads are interfering with the grading and tracking but something isn’t working right. I hope I can get this worked out or I will need to delete the app and try something else.
  • No Customer Support/ Lacks Theory Education

    I have come across many errors. We can send a report but can not specify the exact problem. No response is ever received that they have fixed the error and apologized. My play health is not returned nor record adjusted. Many times I have had the correct answer only to get an error message and my health diminished. Twice my health was completely diminished as I repeatedly typed the exact correct response as their answer and therefore was blocked from continuing. A second problem occurred today as this was day 7 of a 50 gem wager but I was not given my 100 gem winnings. I started a new wager and will see if they mess up again. What is really not acceptable is they give no phone number nor email address where I can go to get help. I have never dealt with a company that did not provide customer support. I would rate the language learning aspect of this app as 4 stars but must degrade my overall rating to 2 because of the serious problems. Pity. Also, if you make an error, a red ribbon appears with the correct solution but it covers your original answer so you can’t see what you did wrong. I use this app to brush up on my foreign language but I could not learn a new language from scratch with Duolingo as they give no Theory education. If you’ve never learned a Romance language before you would be totally confused why descriptive adjectives, verbs, etc. change. You would not know about female/male words or formal “you” & informal nor agreeing singular & plural nor that verb endings differ depending upon the speaker. Duolingo is based on strict memorization so you have no foundation for making educated guesses in future circumstances. Another thing I dislike is that adding a second language to learn does not have its own rewards so there is no reward motivation. Each language should have its owns gems rewards. For my purposes (brushing up on a language I am close to fluent) it is fine but would not recommend it for learning a new language.

    This little app sure helps out!!! Being around an Italian table listening to the locals talk not knowing a thing, to now picking out certain words and making sentences out. slowly but surely the Italian language is becoming clearer and clearer. Thank you Mr. green owl. Your a real hoot😄🇨🇦🇮🇹

    Amazing app, really teaches you the basics as long as you keep practicing. No ones perfect, but mastery is possible.
  • Has flaws while translating

    2
    By Vasistanitin
    It’s a very useful app but one major flaw I noticed while learning Portuguese is the listening section when you listen to a person speak in Portuguese and then you write the English translation in response. Though I am entering the correct translation and it exactly matches the answer in the pop up, the app says it’s a wrong answer. Very annoying and disappointing to see this. A great app overall but this has to be fixed in order to achieve the greatness this app deserves.
  • Love the app but extremely frustrated

    By thetank1978
    I love the app and I would give it 5 stars but for the health change. Within the last few months the health meter was put in and it has really made it hard to get past some sections. To have trouble with new sections and then have to wait over a full day for new health really kills a good streak! Most games that do similar will only take an hour or so before you are back to full strength and can try again. I have had to use the computer to retry the section because I am out of gems on my phone. I have a 531 day streak going and really don’t want to lose it. I am frustrated enough that I have considered stopping my use of the app. Please fix this!
